DHL freight or Roadway shipping. Just get a pallet and strap it to it. DHL is cheap and easy to work with.

If you can get a kart box(they come in new) from someone you can ship via Forward Air.. Cost me $174 to ship kart from Atlanta to Portland.. You have to take it to FA's depot and the receiver has to pick it up at their other terminal.. Any of the truck freight companies will probably be cloase to double the price..

kartshippers quoted $250 from Atlanta to Cleveland, OH and it might go up if fuel goes up.

Will check out the others. TY cb

Have it shipped to the carriers depot and go pick it up to save bucks. We have also used Greyhound for some really good rates and quick shipping.
